    IMHO, cheaters lose out in the end. Some are caught when they have no idea what you are talking about and can't do tasks they are certified in.

    They really do especially if you make a career out of it. Like others have mentioned, if you have to get security + to maintain your job and **** it chances are you won't feel the negative impact, (not that I condone this). But some folks do nothing but ****, **** and ****.

    I've managed several people where I had strong suspicions. I don't personally care as long as they can deliver, they have to live with themselves.

    You are right in most of this point, but I don't think those successful people don't deserve what they achieved, the only thing is I feel lost, in short, I have lived most of my life in my original country and I worked hard to nail the position in one of the largest organizations, I used to earn double what I used to spend, the job security was somehow high, but the country overall situation was awful and getting worse, back there staying alive at the end of the day considered an achievement, and I have had the chance to move to the US, and I did'tit, and then I discovered that my knowledge is not matching or is not aligned with my age, and here where the struggle began..

    I am pursuing the Certification because I haven't had the chance to work in a real datacenter or so, sometimes I think that my lack with communication skills (my limited English language) what holding me back in my career and I tried everything to improve it but the improvement is so slow.

    I understand where you are coming from. I've met other people like you that were doing well in their homelands and moved to the US to end up feeling demoted. Since you come from an environment where staying alive was an achievement I would say you still winning. You may not be where you want to be professionally and financially, but considering your circumstances I would say you are successful.

    The language barrier can definitely be a setback, but not an ultimate roadblock that you cannot get around. Keep working on your tech skills and English while networking and looking into new opportunities. You may not get exactly where you want to be, but I believe you will end up further than you are now.

    Legality: **** websites are infringing on the certification owner’s copyright by distributing copies of the exam without their permission. Whether this is legal or not legal probably has to do a lot with the location. Whether it’s prosecuted is a completely different story. It’s kind of like people torrenting doftware, music, books, etc. At the end of the day, depending on where you live, you’re breaking copyright laws.

    I definitely think less of people who use **** especially if they pride themselves on personal integrity, character, religion, or anything else which goes against cheating, being dishonest, lying, etc. I may not say anything when I see **** material on someone’s computer or overhear them talking about using ****, but I immediately lose a lot of respect for them.

    For people who say dumping only impacts the dumpers, this is wrong because one of the justufications Cisco gave for increasing exam prices was directly related to dumping causing increased costs.

    IMO - brain **** create paper tigers. A new IT person is easy to spot out. A new IT person that turns out to be a paper tiger might as well start looking for jobs in other professions.

    Someone isn't doing them-self any favors if they get a job because of an undeserved cert, and then pigeon hole them-self because they suck at their job.

    That was just an excuse for them to increase prices, Microsoft did the same a few years ago. It was down to greed, nothing else.

    Please don't tell me you actually believe that LOL

    To ****, or not to ****, that is the question:

    Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer

    The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,

    Or to take arms against a sea of troubles

    And by opposing end them. To die—to sleep,

    No more; and by a sleep to say we end

    The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks

    That flesh is heir to: 'tis a consummation

    Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep;

    To sleep, perchance to dream—ay, there's the rub:

    For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,

    When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,

    Must give us pause—there's the respect

    That makes calamity of so long life.

    For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,

    Th'oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely,

    The pangs of dispriz'd love, the law's delay,

    The insolence of office, and the spurns

    That patient merit of th'unworthy takes,

    When he himself might his quietus make

    With a bare bodkin? Who would fardels bear,

    To grunt and sweat under a weary life,

    But that the dread of something after death,

    The undiscovere'd country, from whose bourn

    No traveller returns, puzzles the will,

    And makes us rather bear those ills we have

    Than fly to others that we know not of?

    Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,

    And thus the native hue of resolution

    Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,

    And enterprises of great pitch and moment

    With this regard their currents turn awry

    And lose the name of action.
